It may be those "intersecting needle-like inclusions" that caused the extra time. Also, star sapphires and rubies must be "cut" (actually ground) with the correct orientation (not sexual BTW) or the "star" can be lost or distorted.

If you just can't endure sitting through the seemingly endless episodes of boredom check out Robby the Robot's IMDB page.

dreamer, you're making me have extreme cravings for peach ice cream, and that is a problem, because the weather here is hardly what you would call "clement" and i don't like eating ice cream in winter.

thanks for the imdb link (Robby the robot has an IMDB page. of course he does...). it turns out he was in "Lurch's Little Helper." now i *do* remember that episode. ouf. i won't have to subject myself to episode upon episode of unbearably subversive comedy humor. thank god for that. what a relief.

Sorry about that. I live in a place where temperature is nice enough I can (but really shouldn't) eat ice cream every day if I want. And personally, I have no trouble eating ice cream in winter...sitting in front of the fireplace.

How about trying a bowl of fresh sliced peaches with a sprinkling of sugar? Let it macerate for a few minutes then put a spoonful of peaches on a slice of pound cake or angel food cake. Top with a little cream (clotted or whipped). Excellent! And it won't freeze your brain.

Fresh peaches and a spoonful of plain yogurt...

Peaches aren't ripe here yet, sadly. I refuse to eat store-bought peaches, because they taste nothing like peaches and are either crunchy or mealy.

mmmm, peaches.... actually i like them plain just fine. although technically i prefer nectarines, because i don't like that fuzz. it squeaks on my teeth and makes me cringe just thinking about it. it's like the dreaded n***s on b***kb****s.

crunchy peaches are an abomination, i completely agree. the same goes for nectarines. and mealy is just as bad.

here, in season, you can usually find good ones if you go to the four seasons shops rather than the grocery store, which i always do anyway. i'm going to get some next time i go shopping, for sure.

Have you ever asked yourself why hasn't anyone invented a quick and easy way to spell out Zelda's name with books? Oh sure we could do it at home with our own books but who has the time. I sure don't that is why I click on
Zelda.

i don't know what we would do without you, madame b. i asked myself that question every day, some days more than once. until now ! thank you.

it's a nice touch that a few of my other avatars are present in the stacks.
